Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Why no love for Brent from Rhino?

For some reason i have decided that you are the quintessential brent era fan. I mean this as a compliment as i have grown to trust your judgement on this period ike I trust WT on the Pig era (minus the beginning of '72) and Cliff and Arb for most things up to '81. Lobster is also good for 80s and 90s recs.

Wow what a suck up i have become!! Half way between miami and atlanta tonight i started shivering from a fever, clearly it has messed with my head. Trust WT? For the record the 1ftv version of Blues for Allah goes quite nicely with these kind of shakes.

I suspect all the people who noticed me bent over and shaking were probably thrilled with the idea that someone who looks like a swine flu case was sitting in their row...... Its not, kid had strep over the weekend, the likely culprit.

I am something of a Brent aficionado. I think it has something to do with the fact that the first GD music I heard was tapes that my Dad had from shows he went to in the early 80s. For me, that's the "standard" GD. His first show was in '72, but he briefly was into collecting tapes in the 80s.

Hope you're feeling better. I actually think I had a touch of swine flu last week. It sucked.

Let me ask you this- If you've heard any of the recent shows from the Dead, which would you suggest?

thanks.

I am the wrong person to ask about The Dead. I haven't listened to a single show with the exception of the Penn State one from the fall. I figure there is so much Grateful Dead/Jerry Band that I need to experience still, perhaps I will get around to The Dead in a few years. Others seem to think the shows got better as the tour moved on and i have no reason to doubt them. I would probably check out a Branford one if I were to listen.

Presently I have been grooving at work to Jerry and Merl, mostly stuff that Tigerbolt posted here years ago and that Wineland sent me. In my new office they think I am some kind of jazz expert with all these crazy versions of All Blues and My Funny Valentine coming from my computer.
